It was Dirk Nowitzki's birthday this week.
It's no secret that he's one of the oldest players in the league. The NBA wished him a Happy 39th Birthday on Monday, but he doesn't want to be reminded his age.
At this point just say happy birthday… thanks though https://t.co/phxQPjVAhW

Nowitzki isn't the oldest player in the NBA. Two of his former Mavericks teammates, Vince Carter and Jason Terry, are older and still playing.
